Stunning Fusion in a homely setting

Wow!! First the menu at El Huacatay blew our minds, and shortly following the food did not disappoint! A sensational fusion of European dishes complemented by Peruvian ingredients. Masterly prepared, and absolutely delicious. Do yourself a favour and check this place out.

Came in with a group of about 15 after a long day of treating cataracts for the poor. They accommodated is very quickly, food was served hot and very tasty. Only issue we had was dealing with the bill. So my suggestion is if you come with a group, make one of your friends pay the entire bill!!!

We were in 4 people having a complete menu and absolutely everything was delicious, specially the appetizers! Even the Pisco Sour was the best we had in the entire trip! Well done! Seriously, I ate better there than at famous restaurants in Lima. Well done! For real foodies.

Not much else really going in Urubamba, so I wasn't sure about the reviews for this place. They were spot on. This was a fantastic meal! Everything from the appetizers to the dessert was great. English speaking - no problem. Highly recommend.

Although mostly packed with tourists, was a great meal and quite authentic cooking. Compared to other options in Urubamba, its a bit pricey, but you wont find this quality of execution in most other restaurants.

Went here with two friends. The place looked beautiful when you walk in and we opted to sit inside at eat. Between three people, we had 5 dishes. Alpaca carpaccio was awesome. Mango and avocado salad was good too. The alpaca tenderloin was the best we had in Peru. Will go again!
